powerful against romney is it gave a world view of how he sees the country. >> right. >> and i think that's why we started seeing a whole shift in these polls. >> yeah, i think that's right, reverend. the mask thing by itself is not just positive because we have to remember that there were more george w. bush masks sold in 2000 and al gore actually won that election. so i'm not sure that we can be entirely sure there but it is one kernel there and that's where people are actually focused the most because they are seeing the ads, they are seeing the candidates and hearing the messages. i suspect what is going on there is they are hearing mitt romney's message and he is not as attractive as he would have always been if they had some theoretical republican candidate out there. the contrast where it's being drawn the most firmly is working to obama's favor. >> and i rarely get to correct dana milbank, but i would beg to argue that you forgot the hanging masks of 2008. >> i was counting the ralph nadar masks. >> krystal, let me come back to you. let's look at the poll number. president obama l
this nation. vote. thanks for watching. i'm al sharpton. "hardball" starts right now. >>> romney versus ryan, the divorce. let's play "hardball." ♪ >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. let me start with mr. romney's divorce. why did he pick paul ryan for his running mate? certainly not for better or worse. mitt spends his days and nights acting as if he's out there all alone, that he never hooked up with ryan if the first place. i get it. romney doesn't want to get dragged down by his political mate's push for getting rid of medicare. he acts like ryan has no hold on him, but it's not the way it works. romney has slowly gotten the word that the voter out there thought the two had things worked out, that romney and ryan were in this thing together. well, they're not. romney is dying. he can't stand being tied to ryan, and all that budget cutting baggage of his. for his part, ryan is feeling the taint of having a running mate who is unwilling to stand with him, unwilling to be his kind of politician. a conviction politician. so trouble in paradise. mitt's dying to be single ag
themselves takers exactly. let's listen to jim webb defend them. >> governor romney and i are right about the same age, young guys. like millions in the our generation, we came to adulthood facing the harsh realities of the vietnam war. 2.7 million in our age group went to vietnam. those young marines that i led so many years ago have grown older now. they've lived lives of courage, both in combat and after their return where many of them were derided by their own peers for having served. that was a long time ago. they are not bitter. they know what they did, but in receiving veteran's benefits, they are not takers. they are givers in the ultimate sense of the word. >> joy, the whole thing, people should look it up on youtube, it's the most powerful speech. i raerd it today. it's riveting. >> when i heard this last night i thought to myself, this is devastating for mitt romney. i mean, these two gentlemen are of the same age. you understand, chris, the most seminal decision that had to be made by young men of the vietnam era was whether to answer that call or whether to try to find a way
there right now. all that you hear now is romney doesn't really want to be stuck in that little basement where they cut medicare. >> well, mitt romney was on the campaign trail today saying, i have a little secret, i'm going to win pennsylvania. okay. he's not going to win pennsylvania. >> it's the oldest state in the union. >> he's not going to win pennsylvania with paul ryan's profile on medicare or budget cutting or anything else. so if mitt romney is serious about making a play in pennsylvania, that just underscores how inconvenient paul ryan has become. look, mitt romney did not pick paul ryan because of paul ryan's medicare or budget programs. he picked paul ryan because of his youthfulness, because of the cultural appeal, because of what paul ryan himself calls the deer hunter catholic that he is, okay? that might sell in pennsylvania, but the other stuff won't. and if we're going to be cutting medicare at some point, which i think most voters understand, i think right now looking at these alternatives, they would rather have a democrat they know than a republican from a party that neve
, all right. >> romney's pitch comes as polling shows president obama has the advantage in nine battleground states including razor-thin leads in north carolina and nevada and a bigger lead in mitt romney's vacation destination, new hampshire. all of it comes with a new headline from politico. in the end, it's mitt. all of us making a first presidential debate, which is less than one week away now even more critical for the governor. let's bring in "news nation" panel. david godfrin, michael and steve daise, conservative radio talk show host. thanks to you for being with me on this friday. steve, let me start with you. these new poll numbers, the head-to-head showing the president now ahead in all three states, north carolina, nevada and new hampshire. new hampshire, of course, romney's home away from home where he has a vacation spot. governor romney's favorables continue to be underwater in all but north carolina now. combine these numbers with what we've seen all week, how worried are republicans? how worried are they that we're approaching the point where it might be time to
. but that's one mitt romney must have at this point. >> all right. >> if you look at the different electoral college options and he is a little bit behind. >> a state that came into play and actually helped elect george w. bush, we hear a lot about florida but george w. bush wouldn't have been president without it. new hampshire. that's a state where mitt romney owns a home. the president right now owning a large lead again. that's changed a good bit over the past month. in all three states, mark, registered voters said the direction of the country had improved but the place where that was most significant, new hampshire. in june there was a 20-point gap between wrong track and right track. that gap in this poll is just 7%. we're seeing that time and time again. and now let's go to virginia. another important state. mitt romney loses ohio, mark. i'm sure you agree with me he has to win virginia. and a new suffolk university poll out late last night shows actually the race much tighter than it's been. president obama only added mitt romney by two percentage points. and fascinating there. so h
republicans will tell you are better than the romney ads right now. so you add all that up, significant execution by the obama campaign, an advantage, little bump out of the convention, sure, some of is dissipated but these little things have the race and this is from republicans i talk to in swing states, trickling toward the president. is it irreversible? absolutely not. there are some people in washington who say this is over. forget what they say. there's a big debate next week. governor romney right now as we speak and ari might say he doesn't trust this poll either runs even with the incumbent democrat when voters are asked who do you most trust to handle the economy. if the challenger in this economy can't get a lead on the president on that question, he won't win. >> ari, do you agree with that, on that key question? >> well, it all comes down to the sample size and the poll. again, if the polls oversample democrats, of course you will get that answer. here's why, anderson, i think you have to dig a little deep. in the last six days, there have been seven polls in the state of f
mark murray. mark, as we saw earlier, the polls don't show a pretty picture for mitt romney right now. can he somehow turn the underdog narrative into an advantage? >> absolutely. i mean, there are always political ups and downs in campaigns. the thing mitt romney has to worry about is time is running out. 30 states across the country are engaged in early voting either by absentee or in-person early voting. time is of the essence, and this is why the debate is so important for mitt romney. outside of some external event we can't even think of right now, the debate is his last chance to really change the die nam in this cases of this contest. >> i want to talk about the missouri race for a second here and the relationship to the race. the latest remarks from missouri congressman todd akin sparking a bit of an uproar. he said, quote, i think we have a very clear path to victory and apparently claire mccaskill thinks we do to. she was aggressive in the debate which was quite difference. she had a confidence and was much more ladylike. in the debate on friday she came swinging because she

on this than romney. >> the other thing we saw, a movement over time was the right direction, wrong trend. >> that's what's lifting an incumbent president. saw it especially in new hampshire where he opened a significant lead over mitt romney. >> what was the right track, wrong track? >> closed negative 20 points now to negative 7 points. still more people see it as not going well, but a huge change there, that plays an incumbent's way. >> how people read the state poll, it is about trends at this point. >> yeah. >> everything we come out with is a second poll in the last month. >> go through the same nine states. 110 electoral votes in the nine battleground states. we're going to see romney needs a shift of the whole discussion and reframing of the campaign. he can't just target an extra trip to virginia and ohio. >> a fuller picture. >> change the dynamic of the numbers. >> the entire poll, the raw data on the mayor's website. for the conspiracy theorists, go look at it, play with the numbers yourself apparently. thank you, lee. >>> republicans in hot water today. new allegations of vot
those romney's problem states. one state where romney wins on the economy, right side up favorability rating and where the president's job approval is below 49, north carolina, which is why the state seems to lean, everybody thinks at the end of the day romney gets to 50 before the president. as the poll out this morning shows, it is a razor tight race. the president up two among likely voters, 48-46. in nevada, leads by two. new hampshire, leads by seven points. romney launched his presidential campaign there and has a summer home there. we will see. we have three more polls, state polls and big three next week before the debate, a national poll coming out, but you see the environment. one other interesting note on polling, if you average the nine states together in the various leads, almost looks identical to the national polls. five and a half point lead for the president, 49, 44 with rounding, which of course is where all the national polls sit around five points for the president. romney starts his morning in a state that hasn't been able to put into play, pennsylvania. he will s

for joining us. right now never has mitt romney's ability to shape shift been more on display than yesterday. it involved health care reform, the issue he can't decide whether to run from or embrace, so he did both in the same day. in an interview with nbc's ron allen, romney said his health care plan up in massachusetts, the one that the obama plan is modeled after, shows his compassion. let's listen. >> throughout this campaign as well we've talked about my record in massachusetts. don't forget, i got everybody in my state insured, 100% of the kids in our state have health insurance. i don't think there's anything that shows more empathy and care about the people of this country than that kind of record. >> well, shortly after that, very shortly, a matter of two hours or so, romney spoke before a toledo, ohio, crowd to denounce obama's affordable care act which is based on his massachusetts plan. let's listen. >> i will repeal obama care and replace it with real health care reform. obama care is really exhibit number one of the president's political philosophy, and that is that government
.'s and this time he could be costing romney votes right before the election. how's the public going to view this one? for more, let's turn to msnbc political analyst and "bloomberg ew" comnist, jonathan alter. >> e >> everybody's going to pay attention -- great to have you with us tonight. everybody's going to pay attention to what w. says. what's he going to say about offshore accounts? isn't kind of walking into a mitt romney minefield here? >> he's not going to say anything about offshore accounts and will ste as far clear from thpres hposs c tef what they already know. that they learned about this cayman islands swiss bank account thing months ago and it did serious damage to mitt romney. it'smposble telhow damage. the polls don't actually tell that. but this really -- you could argue before the videotape this did as much as anything to wreck his campaign. americans are smart. they might not be financial wizards but they kw you don't puureythym islands just for a good investment. you're putting it there, you're keep it secret for a purpose to avoid taxes. it's very hard -- >> this jus

. and he went right atr. romney on feiolane . and he is -- he's right there when he says that we don't know what mr. romney would do if he became president. mr. romney has said recently and vaguely that he supports what president obama is doing in afghanistan in terms of there being a timene f leaving but tine lngthsaid he was agnst past. so really who knows? he's not even trying. the closest we've gotten to any competing cogentepublican position on the war is probably what we got from senor john mccain at the republican convenon when he said that the afanisn wajustho't he also thinks that the iraq war shouldn't have ended. so i'm not sure that it's a politically viable position. even if it is an internally cogent one from the senator. for this year's nominee, it's apparently jusnogoing to happen. t less he star it w. 40 days out, mitt romney did get as close as he gets to talking about the issue today. in that he spoke before a group of veterans and talked about a concern about veterans. even if he didn't say what he wanted to do about that concern. mr. romney, in fact, implied th the sequ

not rep the republican party. he doesn't speak for mitt romney, but she's right. it's having a trickle-up effect. it's affecting the presidential race, and it's damaging the party's identity. >> he doesn't speak for the gop, but when he talks about the legitimate rape, obviously, most people run from that, rightly so. when he talks about rape in no cases at all, the legitimate rape comment was only trying to legitimatize that ideology. when he talks about abortion in no situation at all, that's part of the gop platform. >> it's a lot of people who are pro-life have that point of view. that i don't fault him for. what i fault him for is junk science, and his inability to say truthful things. i mean, this is not a person that i think the republicans or anyone would want representing them. >> i fault him for that, and i think most americans understand that women should have the right to make choices. when a woman's life did -- >> pro-choice americans do. not pro-life americans. >> when women are raped and the victims of incest, they should have the right to do what they want to do. >> tha

's right to choose. wait a minute. in 2007, romney said he'd be bbonsd toign n, bil and tonight, his campaign website identifies romney as pro-life. me wants to overturn roe v. wade. he supports a personho measure. romney says president obama has, , jgo hll wrong on all of these issues, these three big issues. maybe he can clarify the truth for us coming up on wednesday night. i'm joined tonight by steve benen, msnbc contributor and writer for the maddow og. he kps track of mitt romney's lies in a riesall tt mendacity. great to have you with us tonight, steve. romney's own pollster said last month, we're not going to let our campaign be dictated by fact ws eyeb strategy to fact check the president? i find it interesting. >> that's a good question. i was thinking, on the wayver here, how i haven't been in me b areshana long time, but i taking psych 101 and remember learning about something when people identify their most glaring faults and project those faults on to the other people. i'm think this is a great example of that. because mitt romney ha demonstrated over the course of sev
. this is a national election and everything has shifted and romney is in a panic right now everything seems to be sliding away. for him to come back it's not like -- it's not about little -- it's not just about small strategies in individual states. they have to figure out how to pull the whole thing back their way. >> that's what's interesting in the rise of conservative chorus. peggy noonan all over the map, basically has big advice for governor romney as he prepares for next week's dpee bait. she -- debate. she says -- but charles krauthammer in "the washington post" keeps it simple -- and then our favorite newt gingrich gave a big round of advice he says be assertive and be on offense against both obama and his media. and he continued, no president in my lifetime has been as vulnerable to humor as president obama. joan walsh -- >> the idea that this president has not been challenged in public, he was heckled by a reporter in the rose garden. he was heckled during a speech by joe wilson saying you lie. this is their wishful thinking and absolute -- >> effectively mocked, though.

right now, the conservatives is that mitt romney is just this great debater. i mean, he is a great debater. can somebody remind the american people, and i'll do it right now, that we have a smart guy on our side? president obama, let me remind you, is a fierce competitor. he will be prepared. he knows his material. he knows who he is. he knows his accomplishments and he knows exactly where he wants to take this country. can you really say that about mitt romney? get your cell phones out. i want to know what you think. tonight's question. can the president sustain this momentum for 40 days? text "a" for yes, text "b" for no to 622639. always go to our blog at ed.msnbc.com and leave a comment. we're joined by florida congresswoman, debbie wasserman-schultz, chair of the democratic national committee. congresswoman, good to have you with us tonight. >> thanks, ed. good to be with you again. >> you bet. are democrats very confident in the ground game that you can duplicate this around the country, what you have been able to do in day one in iowa? >> well, ed, we're very proud if you lo
're a bad politician, you're not going to be a good president either. >> right. eugene, as a top romney official tells politico today, lousy candidate, highly qualified to be president, just as john was saying. the candidate suit fits him unnaturally. he's naturally an executive. their headline, in the end it's mitt. i guess that confirms both of you in the sense that this man may have been a good businessman, but he's neither a good politician and he certainly wouldn't make a good president. >> i think not, martin. i mean, the skills and habits of a ceo are not those that one really needs in the white house. it's all about -- you know, you have to bring along congress. you have to bring along the country. you have to get stuff done. >> you have to have some policies and you have to win people's support. >> exactly. and you can't just say, well, it's going to be this way and it's going to be that way and you can't just, you know, change strategy on a whim or because you read the latest management gurus latest book. it doesn't work that way, and i think we would have seen that if it were
have been saying, go harder, go harder, go harder, mitt romney. he was going harder right there. you heard what he was saying about the president. the president things the killing of the diplomat is a "been in -- "bump in the road." it is a turning up of the volume. >>guest: that is ironic. in the last week there has been a bit of a reversal in what voters thing of mitt romney on terrorism versus the president. for a long-term it was the president's number one extent. the polls have reversed. on the same point, the polls have shown a little bit of an increase for the president on tax policy. he now is heeding mitt -- leadig mitt romney on that. we are seeing a role reversal. >>shepard: it is no way you can say this race is wrapped up. this race is not wrapped up. i don't think either side has any belief this is wrapped up. do people know how fast the news cycles go? >>guest: they do. the president's campaign advisors in ohio are saying that despite some of the polls are showing them up ten points, they are running like they are down ten points. they are not about to rest even if they

's issues all of my adult life. governor romney and i are right about the same age young guys. like millions we came to adu adulthood facing the reality of the war. 2.7 million wept to war. took the lives of young americans and cost 300,000 wounds. during the year that i was in vietnam, 1969 our country lost twice as many dead as we have lost in iraq afghanistan combined over the past ten years of war. 68 was worse and 67 was the same. and there was not a day that goes by that i do not think about the young marines that i was privileged to lead. they have lived lives of courage both in combat and after their return. many of them were derided by their own peers for having served. but in receiving veteran's benefits they are not takers they are givers in the ultimate sense of the word. there is a saying, all gave some, some gave all. it is a heart of a tradition of the freedom and independence. thef paid with their lives, some through wounds and disabilities. not only did they pay, they will not say this, they are owed. they are owed.

. kimberly terry is there. let me get this right. you have president obama, romney and roseanne barr? >> that's right, and she's serious. she says she wants to serve the public and open up important dialogues about issues, including marijuana. roseanne barr says she chose to come to oakland where feds raided oaksterdam in april. the crowds kept calling out for her until she finally made her appearance. >> i'm not doing it for publicity, because my political views have ended my career. so it's not for publicity that's for sure. >> roseanne barr spoke before hundreds tonight. >> absolutely i do smoke marijuana, and i have for several years -- for most of my life as a matter of fact at this point. that's why i'm so cool. >> the peace and freedom party presidential nominee is setting herself apart from president barack obama and mitt romney by taking a hard stance on legalizing marijuana. >> it should be totally legal to smoke marijuana. we live in a free country. we should be able to smoke or drink whatever we choose. as free tax paying adult citizens. >> she told the standing room only crowd sh
romney, it will be his first. so what is at the root here? is this a little reverse psychology? >> right, they're trying to lower expect takings for their respective candidate, making the other guy seem like he's lincoln or douglas or the greatest debaters in the history of the united states. so that if they don't do so well, the expectations game is a little lower. reminds me when al gore was debating george w. bush in 2000, al gore, the vice president of the united states, was seen as a great debate, george w. bush not so much. but then al gore, you know, had some fumbles and in terms of the sighing he did and a lot of people were paying attention to that. and bush all of a sudden looked a whole lot better. these debates can be significant for relatively trivial things like that, if, for example, and you remember when the first president bush, george h.w. bush, you know, at one of the presidential debates started looking at his watch and it looked like he was ready to move on. let's get out of here, already. that hurt him, i think, in his re-election bid against bill clinton back in 19
by forcing romney way to the right. but this is a really hard decision politicallynd practically for republans to rst'in ca of money if they go back in. they canceled all the air time. to buy the spots now would cost five or six times more than the y taly there in the first place. secondly, it's not politically good for the republican party or for mitt romney or for their senate and house candidates be associated in any way with this guy. they already hava huge gder , didn't drop out. the voters are going to drop him in november, and maybe feehery will tell me he dissents from this, and i'm sure he does, but privately a lot of republicans will say this guy can't win. >> the news here today, you referred to how he referred to th -- this is todd an ow heerto dra opponent, the incumbent senator claire mccaskill. let's look at this, what he said today and why it may be a problem for him. he said, quote, she, and that was his opponent, was very aggressive at the debate this past week, which was quite ran against jim talent.n she she had a confidence and was much more ladylike back t
